Our LLB (Hons) Senior Status degree is a two-year LLB programme specifically design for students who hold a degree in another discipline.  In addition to gaining a Qualifying Law Degree in just two years, the programme offers you the additional flexibility of being able to select three LLB course options.  The Senior Status LLB (Hons) degree is particularly popular with overseas students, who may benefit from some exemptions in their home jurisdiction.*

This degree is taught by the same tutors as our standard three year LLB, using the same high-quality teaching methods.  The courses combines academic rigour with practical legal skills, providing you with the essential groundwork of your legal education while you study with other students in a business-like environment.

Over 90% of our tutors are qualified solicitors and barristers, just one of the reasons why our teaching has been awarded a gold ranking in the Government led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The University of Law also has a track record of success with 91% of our full-time LLB students graduating in 2016 securing employment or further study within six months of successfully completing their course. 

This course is ideal for graduates who wish to study a law degree full-time over two years and benefit from the flexibility of studying three additional LLB options in areas of law they are interested in. 

*Interested applicants must check any possible exemptions with their home jurisdiction prior to undertaking the course.
